Complete Health Indicator Report of Incidence of Kidney and Renal Pelvis Cancer

Definition

Incidence rate of invasive kidney and renal pelvis cancer for a defined population in a specified time interval. Rates are age-adjusted to the 2000 U.S. Standard Population. Rates are per 100,000 population.

Numerator

Number of new cases of kidney and renal pelvis cancer among a defined population in a specified time interval.

Denominator

Defined population in a specified time interval.

Why Is This Important?

During 2015, 1,078 male and 652 female New Jersey residents were diagnosed with kidney and renal pelvis cancer. Cancer of the kidney and renal pelvis is more common among people over 50, and occurs more often among men than women. The risk of kidney cancer among smokers is about 40% higher than among nonsmokers.

How Are We Doing?

Between 1990 and 2015, the age-adjusted kidney and renal pelvis cancer rate in males increased from about 15 cases to 22 cases per 100,000. In females the increase was from about 8 cases to 11 cases per 100,000. The reasons for the increase are not clear, though increased use of diagnostic imaging techniques may allow the finding of more kidney cancers. The lifetime risk of developing kidney and renal pelvis cancer is 1 in 48 for men and 1 in 83 for women.

What Is Being Done?

A Comprehensive Cancer Control Plan was developed by the Task Force on Cancer Prevention, Early Detection and Treatment in New Jersey which aims to reduce the incidence, illness and death due to cancer among New Jersey residents. [https://www.cdc.gov/cancer/ncccp/ccc_plans.htm]

Data Notes

Incidence rates (cases per 100,000 population per year) are age-adjusted to the 2000 US standard population (19 age groups: <1, 1-4, 5-9, ..., 80-84, 85+). Rates are for invasive cancer only (except for bladder cancer which is invasive and in situ) or unless otherwise specified.
